    Please download and run the TSG System Information Utility on the PC in question, and then post back the results to this thread. This will give us more of an idea of what we're dealing with here.

    Okay, since Windows 10 doesn't normally shut down fully, hold down the Windows and R keys together to get the Run dialogue box open, type in cmd, and then hit Enter. Within the Command Prompt dialogue box, type in the following and then hit Enter: shutdown /s /t 0 (that's a zero at the end). Note: this will turn off your PC, so ensure you've saved all your files and exited applications properly.

    Once the PC is shut down fully, hit the Power button and - as soon as you do that - start mashing the F2 key repeatedly to get to setup.
